Background

 

Endesa is a Spanish producer and distributor of electricity and gas which currently has 174 plants spread throughout Spain, Portugal and Morocco. With an installed capacity of 26,750MW, it generates electricity from different energy sources (hydroelectric, thermal and nuclear) and 60% of the production of its renewable energy is owned by the wider Italian group Enel.


Challenge

Due to strategic business reasons, Endesa needed to implement a control room in order to remotely control operational activities of one of its power plants which was situated further away. This had to be accomplished without losing video quality or having to move the existing computers from the original location.
